Sharon Runs a Marathon For Sacred Selections

About Sacred Selections

Sacred Selections mission is to financially assist Christian couples whose hearts and homes are open to loving and raising a child in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. The dream of parenting does not have to be constrained by limited financial resources. The foundation, its board and many generous donors are committed to using the blessings we’ve received to assist in the wonderful effort in creating a Christian home and family.

Sharon Runs a Marathon Details

On New Years Day 2014, Jim Sanford unexpectedly passed away from H1N1 - But his spirit and love for orphans lives on!

One year later, on January 1, 2015, I will be running my first ever full marathon (26.2 miles) in his memory. My dad never got to come to any of my races, but he was always my biggest supporter. I knew that every long run I had, he would be more excited to hear about it than anyone else. When I run my marathon, he'll be on my mind the entire time. He will be on the mind of many others as well. 

In his memory, I would love to have others join me in supporting Sacred Selections - an organization that helps fund adoptions for loving, Christian homes. My father was a huge supporter, and if it were not for Sacred Selections, my daughter would not be in my family today. 

Please join me in remembering my dad, and helping another family bring a child into their home where they can raise them up to know and love the Lord!
